The House Investigation.
,The attempt being made by the Pot
ttr.Committeo to reopen tlio strife and
contention about the rightful Presi
dential incumbent will if pushed to
.". .the extent the rabid Jacobins of the
House are capable of carrying it re
salt in such agitation throughout the
country' aa will again paralyze the re
euming arteries of industry, stagnate
tbe avenues of trade and commerce.and
- oper to our future another long dreary
outlook of misery and woe, such as the
last strife was the precursor and pro
genitor of. After the arbitration of the
ohosen fifteen whose decision both par
ties gave acquiescence to in advance,
" nothing but treachery of the darkest
and most rpreheiisible character could
impel anroni to selt the overthrow of
this 6o11t plighted adjudication.
Kaving ben parties to the compact,
ihej now forswear themselves and per
jury is clearly the imprimis of the pro
ceedings initiated by the Democrats in
' the House; beyond and behind this at-
. tempt lies chaos and the dark nlsht of
uncertainty and gloom into which tbe
country will be plunged by the agita
tion. The intricate machinery of the Elec
toral College, which for the purpose of
expressing the will of a majority is a
patent and plain fraud, ought to be
torn out root and branch and a means
adopted by which the choice of the
people might be ascertained without
subjecting it to the uncertainties that
now surround it. "We would advise
the members of that committee to unite
to recommend some means to simplify
the matter for the future, leaving the
past to bury its dead and sow good
seed for tho coming harvest rather than
dragon's teth for the past. There
was an evenly divided difference of
opinion as to the result of the last
Presidential election, and in order to
allay excitement and prevent an immi
nent civil war the Electoral Commis
eion of Fifteen was created, to whom
as a committee of public safety the
diverse interests of the contestants were
given to decide between them. Any
attempt to disturb that verdict is revo
lutionary and consequently void, and it
is not to be presumed that the present
" incumbent will submit to any tamper
ing with the fee simple of his office.
The following is an extract from an
open letter from Hon. A. H. Stephens,
of Georgia, to Mr. Potter, who is act
ing as catspaw for Sammy Tilden:

The vote cast in Portland on June
3d demonstrates beyond a doubt that
the city is rapidly growing; a superfi
cial survey would substantiate this to
a looker on, but there is a feeling ex
tant in rival towns that, owing to
proximity to their own emporium.Port
land id beginning to deteriorate and de
cay. Thirty-two hundred votes cast on
election- day will measurably calm their
apprehensions. The fact is that Port
land's geographical position is such
that she never can have a rival north of
San Francisco, and she is destined to
bo only second to that city in popula
tion as she now is in commercial enter
prise and volume. A glance at the
map of the world will demonstrate that
all the largest commercial cities are
where situated on water-ways located
at the head of ship navigation, the
greater number of " exceptions being
where they are located higher up and
beyond the point of deep water ship
navigation. Hamburg and Bremen in

We occasionally meet an enthusiast
who lives in expectancy of seeing not
only the products of the upper Colum

seeking foreign shipment by the way of
the Sound. This belief borders on
lunacy; a dozen railroads running from
the Sound country into Eastern Oregon
would be of no avail to detract the

The time is not distant before freight
will be transported either wav between
Portland and Umatilla at S-t per ton,
and pay a round profit to the forward
ers. It is not possible that freight
over the mountains to Seattle can be
carried for so small a sum of money.
It must also be remembered a
fact not generally known that Walla
Walla is almost directly east of the
month of the Columbia river, being
however rather south of east. Seattle
is 140 miles north of Portland; taking
Walla Walla, Portland and Seattle as I

all these circumstances into count we
can but iterate that Portland like a "fat
duck sitting on the pearly edge of
prosperity," already taking under her
wings the business of the north, east,
south and west, will expand with the
growth of the country and develop into
a commercial city which will put San

We believe now that the treachery of
the Oregonian, altho' thwarted at home,
has resulted in turning the heads of a
few simpletons like Scott, who have, in
doubtful districts, been numerous
enough to accomplish the ruin of the
Republican party, that it is time the.
party should give that paper a touch of
the same quietus it has exerted itself to
administer to the party. Nursed in the
lap of Republicanism, it grew with the
growth of the party, and, becoming in
solent and overbearincr in its prosper
ity, under the direction of the two ven
omous, snarling hybrids, Hill and
Scott, it assumes to have grown greater
than its creator. It affects to have
thrown off its swaddling cloths, and im
agines it wears breeches as broad as
Scott's. (Its range does seem to cover as
much latitude and longitude.) Now, as
we said two weeks ago, tbe Oregonian
is supported almost wholly and exclu
sively by Republican patronage. The
Oregonian, by reason of this, has been
enabled to procure a monopoly of the
associated press dispatches, and is tbe
only preeent medium of news from tho
outside world, in Oregon.

The Democracy should constantly re
member that the electoral
which seated President Hayes was a
Democratic scheme passed by Demo
cratic votes, and met with nearly all
the opposition it received, from Repub
licans. The party goes back on its rec

The New York Tribune says: " The
Solid South has cut itself off from all
claim to the magnanimous treatment for
a long time to come. By its own con
fession Hayes has done more to pacify
and rebuild it than Tildea could have
done had he been President; and yet at
the first opportunity it turns
to supplant Hayes by Tilden, at the
risk of throwing the whole country
into a revolution. Aside from the reck
less dishonesty of this conduct, it is
the blackest specimen of ingratitude
this generation has seen."

now as sucking doves; and as we listen
we feel that, from some cause or other.
they are not half as courageous as
wnen the hotter resolutions were nrst
broached. Secretary Sherman's bold
charge of forgery has aroused a general
suspicion that somebody has been bad
ly duped, through pretended letters,
held by lying swindlers, who will not
be found at the time when needed to
convict Mr. Sherman, hence the damp
ened ardor of the resurrectionists, who
evidently wish they had not put their
foot in it so deeply. Nor are these im
maculate pafties as sangnine to-day as
when Sam Randall dictated redisrict
ing, as to the great blessings which are
to flow from tho recent gerrymandering
of Ohio. We hear them say the game
is great, and worthy of assuming large
risks to secure both tbe Houses, through
Ohio gains. . and tbe ousting of Mr
Hayes. Yet a few weeks since these
bold fellows entertained no idea of risk.
because they evidently believed the
gerrymander and adoption of the Pot

are more narrowly than ever confined
down to tbe two propositions, one- of
letting a railroad be built by one cor

other of paying 15,000 per mile to
